Bought an interesting Comet the other day. It's the newer flight number ESP, but it's pearly and a little sparkly, almost like some Big Z got mixed in with it. It's decently domey and about as stable as a Z Comet to start off. How do Big Z Comets fly? I never hear anything about them except talk about their meatball stamp

Big z in comets is usually close to z in stability, but can break in a bit faster.

MJ, I went back and rewatched the match play between you and Cam Todd back in '13.

I noticed that you were still throwing the XL at that time. If you don't mind me asking what disc did you use to replace it? Why did you switch away from it?

I see that the XL is in the second wave of Ledgestone discs and this is a disc that I have never had in my hands. I am contemplating picking one up and curious on your thoughts. I already know I am buying a short stack ESP Wasps and Colorshift Comets... so excited, I am, for these.

Since this is also the "& Comet Love Thread," feel free to join the Cometeers social group if you love throwing/collecting the best disc ever made.

I swapped away from it because I liked the older ones before the plastic change in like 07 or 08 and I was running out of them. The newer ones were flippier than I liked them to be.
I changed to the mantis when it came out and also use the undertaker
Might swap back to it at some point if it was a production run disc in the swirly esp plastic

Hey MJ,

Know you did a West Coast run last year. Is that in the cards this year? Also, ever considered coming to Canada to play?

No plans to do a west coast swing this year. It was more of a vacation for me last year than an actual playing good golf swing.


Never had the chance to play in Canada, would like to at some point
